Shoe Studio settles Jimmy Choo dispute

Jimmy Choo has rapped Mosaic-owned Shoe Studio Group on the knuckles for a second time in two years for selling copies of its footwear designs.

In an out-of-court settlement, Shoe Studio Group has agreed to pay Jimmy Choo £16,000 in damages and legal costs after it was accused of selling copies of its £330 Bramley shoe for £60. US footwear giant Nine West supplied the shoes, which will now be destroyed.

Shoe Studio Group took a different line of shoes off the shelves in a similar case with Jimmy Choo in 2005.

Rachael Parman, a solicitor at law firm Shoosmiths, which acted for Jimmy Choo, warned that the practice must stop because significant time and money were invested in ranges.

Shoe Studio Group chief operating officer John Egan said: "The settlement was a fair, reasonable and mutual decision."
